What can orthotics be used to treat?

Orthotic treatment can be used to address a range of common foot conditions and injuries, including pain in the heels, ankle instability, tendonitis, diabetic foot complications, deformities, pronation concerns, and general foot pain. Athletes commonly use orthotics to maximize their performance while minimizing discomfort.

No matter the foot problem, an orthotic is designed to correct the position of your foot so that weight is distributed in an even manner across the soles. Different types of inserts perform particular functions. Some devices are more rigid in order to control movement of the feet, while others are softer providing valuable cushion for your foundation. Selecting the best type of orthotic for your individual needs is best left to the experts. At Austin Foot & Ankle Specialists, we believe that orthotics can change the way you feel about your feet.
